Actors, books, writers …

January 29, 2019

The Art Theatre initiative “Famous actors reading contemporary Bulgarian writers” brought the favourite Bulgarian stage and film actress (40+ years on the stage) Tatyana Lolova to Bratislava on 29 January 2019 where she presented Maria Laleva’s book “Life on the Rocks“. Discussing art and life with art people is a very hearty experience. More on the book after I read it.

Dmitry Sherman – art photography

October 7, 2018

What people who create things of value have in common is their passion for what they do. A small art spot on Panská 17 in Bratislava with an interesting story itself, CT art gallery (the name comes from the “compress time” technique), hosts unique artists.

When was the last time you saw a classic white photography, processed the traditional way? In the period  7 Oct. – 4 Nov. 2018 you may do so at the said gallery and enjoy the art photography of Dmitry Sherman, a graduate of the Moscow Architecture Institute.

Photography. Carpe diem. This very moment. Now … Continuum … Eternity.

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, art is in the soul of the artist.

August begins great – meeting Christy Morgan, the author of “With Love from Bratislava” and having finally her book (for now available at Amazon). Moving to a new country has its challenges, so as a new comer here, fascinated by Bratislava, I can’t wait to start reading Christy’s story. Stay tuned, will write below more when I reach the final page. With love from Bratislava for now!

Christy Morgan,”With Love from Bratislava”

5 August 2018 update: 5 days later, I finished reading Christy’s book – an amazing personal story about not putting one’s dreams on hold and the challenges faced when uprooting to a new country. New beginnings! New challenges!

Sweet people do sweet things. When the heart and mind are in sync, the result is lovely and delicious. Nadya Hristova’s passion to make and decorate cakes and cookies is a never ending inspiration for herself and others. Nadilandia

Directions

Dimitar Pishev

Stephan Komanadarev’s “Directions” (2017) movie tells the stories of six taxi drivers and their passengers, as they move through the night, each in hope of finding a brighter way forward.

A debut role in the movie for the young talent Dimitar Pishev. A master of ceremony, musician or actor, the stage is obviously his place.

“Directions” gives an excellent “diagnosis” of the contemporary Bulgarian society. To Cannes Film Festival review >>>
